I'm tired of reading this crap every time I submit a LSM patch.

I'll say it for the last time... LSM was designed and didn't just plop
into existence. The group has published numerous design documents both
explaining the decisions and rational behind the design and
implementation of the project. They are available at,
as you probably already know. I know you don't like the implementation
we currently have, but as no one has stepped up with a different
implementation, that has been designed and tested to work for an
extremely wide range of different security models, I suggest you stop
this kind of attack.

However, concrete criticism of specific implementation details, like you
have done in the past is welcome, and encouraged. I'll look into your
comment about coding style issues that you mentioned earlier in this
